Brianne’s paintings explore the relationship between architecture and nature, symbolizing transitional phases of growth and transformation. Brianne creates a narrative in each oil painting, illustrating passageways of transition through symbolism in nature and metamorphosis. The extreme angular position presents the viewer with an investigation of endings and beginnings at an unusual perspective. Using classical styles of painting, Brianne aspires to high realism and atmospheric perspective. Studying in Florence has heightened her discipline, raising her work to a new level of intensity and breadth of skill.
